The girl who was once from NYC unintentionally transplanted to the sticky trap of the CT countryside. Teacher, singer, writer. Dancer along the path through the dark.
~May words and music and laughter light the way to kindred spirits, kind of heart~
Also a Mommy. That's the most important thing that's happened along the way, but not what this blog will be about.

I decided not to participate in the writing challenge this month simply because I dislike pressure. I have enough in my life, and don’t want to take things on I can’t live up to in the quality and caliber I would prefer. I do think, though, this month I have determined a possible format for the book I began last year and have been quite remiss in attending to. When will I get to it, write it all, and finish it? Don’t know. Do I still plan to find a way to bind and publish some poetry first? Probably. But, it’s nice to see so many of my fellow writing friends, you of prose and poetry, challenging yourselves. I look forward to reading the products. : )

Meanwhile, I will (also) quietly go on with my life in the teaching world, the Mommy world, the on-my-own world, the music world—where and when I can manage that. I will hope and dream and try not to lose faith in myself and maybe most importantly I will try to remember to keep my big boots on in case I have to navigate past the shit that can get tossed in the pathway.
